Ellen is 15 years old and in 10th grade at Huntsville High School. This is her fourth year with the Nerdettes, but before this she was on an elementary school team and competed in FLL. On the Nerdettes she is lead electrical and lead CAD Designer (3D printing). Outside of robotics she is a varsity runner for Huntsville High School, and she likes to go to church and Chick-fil-a. One of my favorite things about the Nerdettes is helping our sponsors and working with other teams.
“FIRST has impacted me because it taught me how to work with a team and gave me friends that I cherish. FIRST has also given me lots of opportunities to give back to our community. I love FIRST!”
